Awesome beer selection and great food

I've stopped in twice for a rare beer they had on draft. First time I had one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've ever had. Second time I had homemade Mac and cheese that was delicious. The menu is different, but everything seems to be homemade. Throw in an amazing beer list, and this is a must... read more

Most creative bloody Mary's in Worcester! Can you say Bacon?! Great local beers on tap as well. Food menu is very creative from local farms.

Usually we go to the Citizen, but it happened to be fully booked till 9:30. I'm glad it was! We had a great meal and great drinks! I loved the atmosphere and the service was wonderful. We definitely recommend this restaurant!

The food was excellent. Home made breads were the best. The service was attentive. The beer choices were numerous. We were there on a saturday at 4pm it was already crowded mostly college kids. My only complaint was the noise level. Some creative engineering could solve that. I will go back.

This place is terrific. We're semi-regulars. This most recent trip was for drinks and snacks after a show at the Hanover Theater. Impressive rotating draft beer list - the go to place in the area for Belgian beers. Food & cocktail menu change often to reflect the season - both from a weather and local ingredient availability standpoint. I had... More

Craft brews, local veggies and bread, interesting menu, good service. We'll be back, if for no other reason than there were so many things we wanted to try but can only eat/drink so much in one night! We came in early on a Friday night which helped to avoid the younger crowd which showed up as we were finishing our... More

Farm to table menu. The restaurant tries so hard to be unique that it was actually hard to order. They have a huge cheese selection. Best advice is to ask your waiter for selections. The meals were good, but just too many strange ingredients. We all loved the sweet potato cheesecake though. It was so smooth and tasty. Strange enough... More

Beer was served too warm. All of it. Got a carefully selected flight of Euro and US beers, and a separate 10 oz. All the beer was painstakingly poured by my cordial barkeep, and all of the tastes were too warm. (Of course when you say that, people say, oh well Americans drink their beer too cold; or, the beer... More

A Great restaurant. I was a little taken a back by the farm to table. But to my surprise it was incredible. I had A Cider waffle with apples cut up on top syrup they put on and a whipped butter with sweet potato flavor. It was so light that you really did not have too much of a taste... More
